Posted on February 12, 2015 by marketingintern

Using Rogers and Hammerstein as inspiration, we compiled a list of the top favorite things viewed on both the Cleveland Museum of Art collection online and the ArtLens app in 2014, and added a few other favorites. Spanning decades and continents and varying from surrealist to neoclassical to impressionist, each piece gives us a reason to not feel so bad about winter. Visit our permanent collection and see for yourself.

Caravaggio's Crucifixion of Saint Andrew: An Update on the Treatment of a Treasure

Posted on January 27, 2015 by DYoder

In 2014, the Cleveland Museum of Art treated The Crucifixion of Saint Andrew by Michelangelo Merisi da Caravaggio in front of museum visitors for the first time, and audiences were able to witness firsthand the skill, planning, research, and technical analysis that go in to a major conservation project. Conservator of Paintings, Dean Yoder, worked in the gallery, cleaning the painting by removing deteriorated varnish layers and old retouching, until the September, when the painting went back into the museum’s conservation laboratory for further restoration. Here, Yoder shares an update on the restoration of the Caravaggio since the fall and what comes next.
